Every time I see photos of Real Housewives from different cities hanging out, I want to know what happened before and after those pics were taken. Are these people actually friends or are these just photo opportunities that guarantee a lot of likes on Instagram?
The Bravo network really is the gift that keeps on going. No one is more aware of that than the king of Bravo himself, Andy Cohen, who blessed us all with an amazing, holiday themed episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Andy dubbed the night 12 Doorbells of Christmas. The guests were everything – for the most part. I won’t point out who I wasn’t as excited to see (since it should be pretty obvious), but I can’t help getting pumped for any Bravolebrity if I’m being honest.
Now that the first season of Summer House is over, the cast members are free to talk about everything we watched and to share what else went down that didn’t make the episodes. Kyle Cooke and Cristina Gibson talked about all of the Summer House drama in a recent interview.
This included Cristina’s broken friendship with Lindsay Hubbard (a constant topic of conversation), her belief that Carl Radke used her as a scapegoat to get out of dating Lauren Wirkus, and her opinion that Stephen McGee is a bigger meddler than she was last summer. Kyle discussed his relationship status with Amanda Batula and provided some much-needed back story to their interaction.
I feel like Stephen McGee was everyone’s favorite cast member from the first season of Summer House– well except for Lindsay Hubbard and Everett Weston. They are not Stephen’s biggest fans and vice versa. As the newcomer to the group, Stephen wasn’t really involved in most of the drama. Instead he provided the fans with “that’s exactly what I was thinking” commentary in response to the group’s antics.
Even though the first season is (sadly) over, Stephen still has a lot to say about what went down last summer and since the show started airing. He shared his opinions on the cast’s love lives (including his own) and he even revealed who actually paid for the summer house last summer.
Even though she is not a cast member on Summer House, Kyle Cooke’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Amanda Batula is shown a lot on the show. Unfortunately for her, this includes those night vision hookup cameras in the bedrooms, but it excludes Amanda giving her side of the story in any way shape or form. So I couldn’t help wondering what she thought about her portrayal on the show.
Amanda opened up about her relationship status with Kyle and whether or not she thinks Cristina Gibson had good intentions meddling with their interaction.
When I watched the episode of Summer House with Lauren Wirkus laying into Cristina Gibson for “accusing” Jaclyn Shuman of flirting with Carl Radke, I was wondering what Lauren would think watching the previous episodes because it did come across like Jaclyn was flirting with Carl. She kept talking about sleeping in the same bed with him, so I thought that was pretty “flirtatious,” but Jaclyn provided some back story to explain that conversation. Will it make the viewers look at their interaction with a different perspective?
Believe it or not, but her explanation does make sense. Do I still think she was flirting with Carl? Yeah, I do. It seems like Jaclyn flirts with everyone and the whole cast (except for Cristina) is okay with it. Still, I have to say that I was surprised when she shared some additional information about her conversation with Carl.
